Caption

Cells from a typical case of hairy cell leukaemia showing the structural figures. Hairy cell leukaemia is an uncommon haematological malignancy characterized by an accumulation of abnormal B lymphocytes. Hairy cell leukaemia was originally described as histiocytic leukaemia, malignant reticulosis, or lymphoid myelofibrosis in publications dating back to the 1920s. The disease was formally named leukemic reticuloendotheliosis and its characterization significantly advanced by Bertha Bouroncle and colleagues at The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1958. Its common name, which was coined in 1966, is derived from the hairy appearance of the malignant B cells under a microscope.
